PRACTICE INFORMATION

Practice is held at Foothill High School in Palo Cedro. Our 14u and 12u teams practice on the turf field while the 10u and 8 teams are on the lower freshman field.  All Cheer squads practice on the turf field.

Parents are welcome to watch but must stay 50ft away from practice at all times or in the stands for the stadium team.

Only certified coaches with SYF badges are allowed on the fields. 

Parents may walk the track, but refrain from disrupting or disturbing the practice. 

Practice times are subject to change. Since we share the turf field with the Varsity team, the practice starts later to allow them time to exit. During the summer time practice is held Monday through Thursday 6:30 - 9 pm. The lower field (8u & 10u) will practice from 6-8:30 pm. After the Jamboree we reduce the end time of practice by 30 minutes and only 3 days a week, Tuesday-Thursday.  

Air Quality Index

Air Quality Index (AQI) Policy - Airnow.gov

The following policy is being adopted by the Foothill Jr Cougars from recommendations prepared by the Shasta County Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD). Their website can be viewed here.

The Fire and Smoke Map considers the following in determining the Air Quality Index (AQI)*:
● Data from permanent official monitoring sites (Circles),
● Data from temporary official monitoring sites (Triangles),
● Data from low cost sensors i.e. Purple Air (Squares),
● EPA approved correction factors for the low-cost sensors that provide more accurate data,
● Ease of use by the public who no longer have to “switch” the data into the AQ&U or LRAPA correction factor
● Visual layers showing fire and smoke plume locations.

*Due to quality control processing, some low cost sensors do not display on the AirNow Fire and Smoke Map. These sensors can be accessed at the Purple Air website. In the Map Data Layer dialogue box, switch the correction factor from “None” to “LRAPA”. This will display corrected values.

-Practice will be called at 5 pm.
